Librivox recording of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving.
The quiet Dutch community of Sleepy Hollow lay in the Adirondack mountains on the western shore of the mighty Hudson River in America's colonial period. The solitude of the woods was breathtaking, and not even a schoolmaster was immune from the eerie miasma which everyone knew permeated the dense forest. Written in 1820, Washington Irving's The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has become a classic of American literature, and has been retold in many different ways. Here is the original, from Irving's own hand.

Subject: A brilliant reading of an American classic
Wonderfully read and well worth the listen.
The story's description, as provided by the author, is a bit off the mark. The story takes place on the eastern shore of the river in the lower Hudson Vally, in present day Tarrytown, a long way south of the Adirondack's (and the more nearby Catskill mountains).
I have listened to hours of recorded books, many of them librivox recordings and this is one of the very best I have heard. Well read and great emotion made it very easy to listen to. Absolutely wonderful!
Subject: Flawless performance, sonorous voice...
Precisely what I was hoping for, a perfect reading of a very dense text.
